Check to verify that the IDE hard drive is running in a DMA mode.

Go to Device Manager> IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Right click ATA Channel 0> properties> Advanced Settings. Check the Enable box if available.

If the IDE drives are not running in a DMA mode then you may need to install the motherboard chipset drivers.

You can download a diagnostic utility from the maker of the hard drive. You may have to make a cd, but I would test the hard drive to see if is failing.
